i bought a Eu-rail pass.

i bought tickets for the shows I wanted to absolutely see
1-Smaller German show

i brought a small backpack
with things mostly to trade

i lived on French Bread and nutella

i stayed in youth hostels wherever possible

in East Berlin I stayed with Squatters
who were living in a bombed out hotel.
(Still in Rubble from WW2)

i split a hotel like 10 ways in Amsterdam
where the streets did not feel safe overnight.
(And I am from NYC)

In Paris i stayed in a 4 story 'stairs only' hotel
on the top floor

The only real sacrifice i had to make was to sell my top jazz records down in Greenwich Village that hurt but
what's the line?
